From my first vinyasa class fourteen years ago, I knew yoga was for me for the rest of my life. Did I practice and teach yoga in another life? I especially enjoy introducing yoga to those who think they are too stiff, or sore, or injured or old. Not true! Come try a class with me! I am grateful to share my enthusiasm and expertise in each class that I am fortunate to teach. I especially love the moment when class finishes and everyone experiences the deep peace, satisfaction and enjoyment of the yoga experience. What can I offer and share? Only the best of what has been given to me.

My classes consist of a strong, steady flow with an emphasis on connecting to, and moving with your breath. My goal is to create a space where you can slow down, connect with your body, creating a sense of wellbeing and inner peace that you can take with you when you leave class.
Outside of the studio I am the mom of three girls and three rescue dogs, so you’ll often find me watching kid’s sporting events or walking in the woods.
“I am always amazed at the strength and capabilities of these awesome bodies we are blessed to walk in every day. One of my favorite quotes is: “I’m in competition with only myself; I simply want to be a better me today than I was yesterday”. Yoga certainly supports this journey bringing balance and strength; both on and off your mat, to body and mind through a practice connecting breath and movement. I hope you’ll join me as we move through creative, challenging and energetic asanas; building strength and balance together. Namaste”

Abigail MaverikeYoga Teacher
I believe the relationship we have with ourselves is the most important relationship we will ever have. My yoga classes are designed for you to meet yourself on the mat, from the surface of your skin to the depths of your being. When we are able to sustain evenness of mind while confronting inner limitations and outer challenges, our full physical and mental potential begins to develop and we are able to observe the benefits in our everyday experience. My yoga approach plays with deep holding, exploring the purpose of poses, while blending flow and fluidity so you eventually tune in to your natural rhythm of being. My classes end with deep meditation in a body ready to let go into now.

Margaux MillerYoga Teacher
Margaux began her journey with yoga when she was 17 years old. She was drawn to the practice because of the physical mindfulness and connectivity the movements on the mat inspired in her body. Having always been a physical person, the practice challenged Margaux to explore her own limits and develop a more meaningful, healthy relationship with her body. Yoga has continued to give to Margaux as time has passed; time on the mat refreshes and grounds her. Her practice also balances her spiritually. In the summer of 2015, Margaux was certified as a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher from Forever Om Yoga of Lake Forest, Illinois. Through teaching, she hopes to invoke in her students growth in their physical, mental and emotional understanding, strength and acceptance. Margaux’s teaching balances a rigorous practice of vinyasa flow with an intentional meditative aspect. Her classes are challenging and rewarding. compassionate approach to teaching.
“I began by teaching classes for hockey players at the University of Vermont, Rice High School and youth hockey. I have taught classes for school students as well as classes for the “unflexible” and I have created classes for runners and athletes. My style moves slower to allow the body to warm up stretching tight muscles safely. I take time to adequately stretch the hips, hamstrings, quadriceps and glutes- areas that tend to be tight on athletes (and myself!). I also work with low back injuries and focus on strengthening the core to help support the back and the rest of the body. I believe deeply in the healing value of yoga. My ideal is for you to leave the class feeling like a sponge that was just wrung out- relaxed, content and happy!”
Rowan BeckYoga Teacher
I was drawn to yoga 20 years ago to improve my mental and physical health. The yoga mat was the perfect refuge for me to find the patience and centeredness I was seeking to navigate single motherhood and a very busy lifestyle. In 2016, I took my 200 YTT to find my voice as a teacher and completed my 500 YTT in 2018. As a lifelong learner, I am on a quest to share how a healthy combination of yoga and endurance sports can help free the mind. In my class, I focus on opening and expanding my students’ hearts, bodies and minds. My teaching helps to both strengthen the muscles and release any tension you may have allowing your body to find its way back to center. You will leave the class feeling like you have created more space, more energy and possibly feel a little “yoga drunk” (just ask me what this means the next time you see me in the studio). In some of my classes I play an eclectic mix of music which is integrated into my vinyasa flow sequences. I also try to bring lightness and humor to my classes. Outside of the studio, I am a mom, athlete and leader of a social media marketing and wellness business. I look forward to meeting you on the mat – let’s get centered.
“I’m grateful for the wonderful yoga community we have here in Burlington. My approach to class is working with postures, alignments, and breath to find spaciousness within the mind. ‘Flowing with pace, holding with grace.’ An avid soccer player, I know how much yoga has helped both my fitness and mindset, on and off the mat. Yoga shines in daily life, in our interactions and relationships. My hope for you is that my classes challenge and inspire you. My favorite quote is from my Vedanta teacher – ‘We are all searching for that, which we do not realize we already possess.'”
